Thanks Richard! I didn't recognize what type it was when I took it but later found out it's pretty rare.

Gary, we can only imagine the pride you felt and how this event has printed a truly significant "once in a lifetime" moment upon you!!!

Perhaps words are totally inadequate in any ability to convey it all... and likely so, our friend, those images just might be the most treasured "aircraft spotting" photographs you'll ever capture!

My congrats to You... and my kudos to the Major!!!

My "formal" salute to him... and a sincere tip of my hat to you!

Certainly, a job well done to you both!!!

Greg and Cliff .. Hi, guys. TY for the comps. I should have worked on this shot instead of just cropping and then uploading the digicard original, but in this instance I'm going to make an exception to my usual rule of only posting one pic of a specific a/c so since I'll be posting a couple more of this Bug, the next ones will have been edited a bit. This was a super special afternoon. Lorne was in my LA class for all but one of his HS years. He had called to tell me he would be coming into Reno at noon from Seattle (in all those years, his first-ever return back to here in an F-18). I can't truly describe my feelings when the flight of two came directly overhead and then broke left ... exactly at noon. And then to see him in the two-seater ... as instructor! ... a wonderful sight!! Then, when the two Hornets had parked and shut down, he came over and his first words were, "Hi, Mr. S." Here he is ... a Major in the Marine Corps, an F/A-18 pilot, and a warbird instructor at Miramar ... and he is still calling me "Mr.". I had quite a chuckle over that. I told him those days were long ago ... it's first names now. Gotta say, guys ... I've snapped hundreds and hundreds of military metal aircraft, but getting captures of 164203 with Lorne up front is the BEST military warbird snap I'll ever take. (Wave)

Roland - by late in the war our bases in England were not nearly as vulnerable to attack, so camo no longer needed as much from that standpoint, and the bomber formations had such a massive visual signature from the exhaust contrails that camo did not really matter much in the air either. I suppose if you were a straggler flying alone you would want camo, but for the most part late in the war it was just not as necessary.

Kobe - Okay... I'm not an expert on this one, but I do know this Sikorsky was a "heavy lift" helicopter in service with the U.S. Army and was used in the Vietnam War and saw use afterwards.

It was also designed to carry mission specific pods, such as medical, photo lab, communications, etc. Many, if not all, of the CH-54 helicopters were eventually transferred to Army National Guard aviation units and all have now been retired from U.S. military service.

Erickson Air-Crane bought the FAA type certificate and manufacturing rights to this helicopter from Sikorsky in the early 1990's.

Kobe, yes, it's a grass field airport southeast of Huntsville, AL...

Written on 22.05.2017 by Rick Finch

At first glance, those trees looked like clouds!

Written on 22.05.2017 by Ronald Ramsaran

Kobe Hunte - It is identified correctly as a CH-54 by the photo uploader, Mark Fields. That's to say this one is a Sikorsky CH-54 Tarhe and might also be seen with Sikorsky's model designation, the S-64 Skycrane.

Written on 22.05.2017 by cliff731

IT looks like it is landing on the grass... is it?

Given the lack of windows, except forward beneath the cockpit, and the appearance of what appears to be an aft clam shell style hatch, I assume this heavy lifter was intended to carry internal cargo. Also, paint scheme and lack of mil markings implies commercial, non-military. Soviets developed a number of unique aircrafts in the 60's and 70's which belied the common perception that they copied western designs. Thank you for marvelous photo submission.
